#AsianLitBingo TBR

asianlitbingo-banner2

It’s Asian American Heritage Month in the US and so it’s time again for #AsianLitBingo! It’s a challenge created by Shenwei, celebrating Asian literatures and cultures and it’s going on through all of May. Read all the details over at Lit CelebrAsian.

Books that count towards the bingo:

  • Fiction books should have an Asian main character (can be one of several main characters) and be by an Asian author to qualify. It does not have to be #ownvoices, but reading #ownvoices books is strongly encouraged!
  • Nonfiction books should be by an Asian author with a focus on Asian people, whether it’s a[n] [auto]biography, history book, essay collection, etc. A nonfiction book can count for prompts other than the nonfiction square provided that it that focuses on a person/group that corresponds to that prompt (e.g. an autobiography of a Asian trans woman could count for either the nonfiction category or the LGBTQIAP+ Asian MC category).
  • The free space is for any book with an Asian main character by an Asian author.

I picked the vertical row on the left, trying to change it up every year, as I know 5 books are usually all I can manage. But I’m happy this challenge is happening again, maybe I’ll mamage an extra read. My tbr isn’t carved in stone yet, but these 5 sounded pretty good to me:
